Students who have completed three (3) years of full-time, face-to-face secondary or post-secondary education in an English-speaking country where English is the primary language of instruction may meet VCC’s English language requirements by completing a high school or university English course with specific grades according to the program-specific English requirements stated in the above chart. Refer to the list of English-speaking countries.
High School English
The required high school English grades may vary by program. Refer to the English Entrance Requirements for International Students for program-specific requirements. English as a Second Language (ESL) and transfer (TS) courses from non-English speaking countries are not considered in the three-year calculation.
Students who have completed an undergraduate English of three (3) credits in an English-speaking country may meet VCC’s English language requirements. The required grades vary by program. Refer to the above chart for program-specific university English requirements.
Students who have been awarded a degree from an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution where English is the language of instruction are considered to have met the language proficiency requirements for all VCC programs. University degrees with at least 3-years of face-to-face non-ESL instruction, obtained from an English-speaking country where English is the language of instruction, may be accepted as an equivalency.
